Get Involved

 

Co-creation is one of our underlying principles, so it’s really important to us that everyone in a city has the opportunity to contribute to the OrganiCity movement.

Whether you’d like to learn more about OrganiCity by attending an event, volunteer in an experiment in your local area, or run an experiment of your own, there are numerous ways to join our growing community.

 

Join our community!

  • Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with the project and any upcoming events.
  • Sign up to our newsletter to receive monthly updates and links to recent blogs and papers.
  • Meet us in person by joining one of our events. We often run events in the three core cities of Aarhus, London and Santander to discuss an upcoming stage of the project, celebrate what we’ve achieved or to receive feedback on how we can improve our service. We also regularly speak at urban and innovation events throughout Europe, so keep an eye on our events page for upcoming events in your city.

 

Experiment

Do you have an idea for how data could help us tackle urban challenges?

OrganiCity’s Experimentation as a Service framework allows you to test your ideas at scale, receive support from the OrganiCity team and access to a range of digital tools, an international community and best practice expertise in legal and ethical considerations.

  • Do you need to find partners for your experiment?
    You can connect with communities, entrepreneurs and people with different skills.
  • Apply to experiment through our open call. Add your idea to our Scenarios tool or browse and discuss other people’s ideas.

Contribute to Experiments

We believe that experiments are far more successful when they are informed by multiple stakeholders and expertise. So be active in reaching out to potential experimenters.

Would you or your community like to participate in an experiment?
You can sign up as an individual or as a community and offer your time to potential experiments in your city. You can also encourage experimenters to help you achieve a particular goal.

Would you like to contribute your skills or knowledge to someone else’s experiment?
Offer your own skills and knowledge to other potential experiments who might be preparing an application.
